Novena to Our Lady of Fatima

Today is Day 1 in the Novena to Our Lady of Fatima. As part of Benedictine College’s celebration of the 100th anniversary of the appearance of Our Lady at the Fatima site, we encourage everyone to pray the Novena. Below is a prayer from the “Blue Army,” an official, Church-sanctioned Fatima group. If possible, pray with a Rosary from May 4 until the May 12 Vigil of Our Lady of Fatima.

“Most Holy Virgin, who has deigned to come to Fatima to reveal to the three little shepherds the treasures of graces hidden in the recitation of the Rosary, inspire our hearts with sincere love of this devotion.”

The 100th anniversary of the first apparition coincides with Commencement Day, May 13, 2017!

Go to the college’s online Fatima page for additional Fatima prayers, information on the centennial and to sign up to lead the daily Raven Rosary.
